We work from the human rights perspective in areas of health, especiallyHIV/ AIDS treatment, and prevention, recognizing that health vulnerability isstrongly correlated with broader social, economic, and politicalmarginalization. We also have a strong track record on issues related to genderand patriarchy, like domestic violence, the right to education, counseling, andsupporting families in extreme poverty.
